Mars, the planet of willpower, enters the zodiac sign of Libra on Dec. 7. This will change the balance of power in your relationship. But Mars doesn't do this to wreak havoc in your life. Mars does this to test your mettle. If you've always been the leader, then it will be time for you to share the power. If you've always been the follower, then you will need to step up to the plate. There's always a "man-up" quality when Mars energy is strong (even if you're a woman), but it's in service to invigorating your relationship and making it the best that it can be. Those relationships that are found wanting or that don't make the grade will be unceremoniously jettisoned.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 18)
Mars will occupy a prominent place in your horoscope for the next eight months. It's very important that you set the right intention for yourself while this planet is so influential. The intention should be positive, and it should involve something that takes you out of your comfort zone. Focus on the things that you want to see happen in your life and not on the things that you're afraid will happen. Mars supports brave moves, not timid ones. Give direction to this powerful force and you will go further than you've ever gone before.
